BLM dispersed in AZ


Recommended Posts

I drove by an area a few miles west of the Ben Avery shooting range where there were RVs parked on what I assume is BLM land.  How do I know that this is BLM land and is there any permit required if you just stay a night.   I have not done BLM camping since many areas have rough roads.   This was right off the highway.  I do not see it on the online BLM map

I believe that the area you are describing is the camp ground attached to the Ben Avery Shooting Center and is not BLM land. Go on Ben Averys website and you will see more info

That area will probably be developed in the near future.
Taiwan Semiconductor just purchased a huge chunk of land on the southside of that area:

I think I know the area that OP is talking about, it's quite a bit further west. We travel Lake Pleasant highway spring and fall, as we come and go snowbirding. I've seen RV's parked on the north side of the highway, but never stopped to ask anyone.

I have been wrong before, I'll probably be wrong again.
